I want to convert a tiff file (DEM) into an XYZ file with FME. I have tried using the sa - sample tool in ArcGIS and it took 19 hours to accomplish 9% of the task. I saw a post by Mark Ireland that mentioned using FME to accomplish this task much faster. Here is an image of the post:
This looks relatively simple, however I am relatively inexperienced with FME and was wondering anyone can help decipher how to accomplish this task by looking at the FME diagram he posted.
